Maternity and Parental Leave
It's highly likely that you may need to deal with an employees pregnancy, parental leave or paternity leave in your business. Maternity rights are complex and it's important that you know what your obligations are towards your employees and what the employees rights are.
Additionally, the introduction of Shared Parental Leave in recent years has meant that both parents can take long periods of time off work so all businesses should be aware of their obligations to their staff and ensure appropriate communications take place throughout.
Along with maternity and parental leave comes adoption leave, paternity leave and flexible working. Navigating these issues can be a real minefield for employers.
We have handled many pregnancies and maternity leave periods over the year and can provide correspondence and calculations for employees, liaising directly with the staff at all times if you wish.
Flexible working is now a statutory right for the vast majority of employees and there is a legal process to follow when a request has been made. We can ensure that you comply with the legislation, providing step by step assistance and the correspondence to suit the circumstances and can help with implementation of an accepted request or communicating the decisions around a rejected request.
If you're dealing with any of these issues or would like to make sure you're prepared for the eventuality, fill in the form below with some brief details and we'll get in touch.
